Browsium has released the latest version of its Browsium Ion tool that helps companies to run Internet Explorer-based applications on new editions Windows operating systems such as Windows 7.
The new version of Browsium Ion is developed on the basis of Browsium’s UniBrows product, which was released last year. Unlike UniBrows, which used the original, native IE6 engine, Browsium Ion uses the engines that Microsoft built into Internet Explorer 8 and Internet Explorer 9 to enable Internet Explorer 6 run applications to run on Windows 7.
The software giant Microsoft itself has been encouraging its customers, even those using Windows XP, to upgrade to Internet Explorer 8 — but not Internet Explorer 9 as Internet Explorer 9 is not compatible to Windows XP. For users, the upgrade process can be a bit difficult and costly too.
On the other hand, Browsium is targeting only those users who want to get rid of Internet Explorer 6 and Windows XP, but are reluctant because of the internal dependencies on those products.
The Browsium Ion 60-day trial package is available for free download from the company’s website.
